It's getting to be that Time of Year


I am starting to see to see the signs of Fall and the upcoming holiday season. If you go to Home Depot, Sams or Wal-Mart just take a look around. In addition, I am seeing more homes decorated in Destrehan LA for Holloween. Close to Destrehan there is a pumpkin patch farm. For years my kid's schools have made the annual field trip to Montz Pumpkin Farm and Hayride. Located at 17834 River Road, phone 985.652.3672.

Some tips for your Pumpkin lasting thru out the season.

•1.     Try to pick off the vine

•2.     Find a Pumpkin with as few as possible soft spots which will help with rot and mold

•3.     Carving pick a large Pumpkin

•4.     Don't carry your Pumpkin by the stem

•5.     For Pumpkin Pie chose a small one

•6.     Keep the Pumpkin in an undisturbed, cool and dark place once home for cure. This will toughen the rind and prevent rot.

Of course keep safety in mind when at the Pumpkin Patch.

I am just glad to walk outside and not start sweating immediately.

Frank - Thanks for sharing these great pumpkin tips!  I can't believe homes in Destrehan LA are already decorated for Halloween.  The signs of fall are clearly here up north with the leaves already starting to change colors.
